    New Patriot LX PRO Series Obliterates Current SDHC Class10 Performance Classification

    I find it strange also. I thought that their is an industry standard. I just bought Kingston class 10 for my camera. How am I suppose to know that their card is twice as fast if they still call it a class 10. I had two choices of class 10 at the time and went with the best warranty. If a...

    TRENDnet Launches the 3-Port 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter

    "Milking" is exactly what it is,if what you say is true"Also these started at 14mbps and then jumped to 84mbps. 200 is the current". The potential to give consumers 1gig now is available, the industry has stated as much, but they would rather "milk" by coming out with increments and having the...

    TRENDnet Launches the 3-Port 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter

    The big picture here is how the internet could be delivered to every house in America through the power lines but the major players (Cable ISPs) would lose control. The Cable outfits wouldn't be able to spew the bullsh_t anymore. They wouldn't be able to suck the government into more...

    AMD Revising Radeon HD 6900 Series PCB

    I was wondering about that because the 2900 pro had a 8 pin connector and I only have 2x6 pin, so I connected 2 more grounds which allowed me to use the ati over drive. Theirs discussion here that the 2 pins to be added might just be grounds, but if someone here has a 6970 they could take a...

    AMD Expands Athlon II Series Processor Lineup

    Not for prime time AMD is saying with these processors that the majority of buyers don't need and buy Hi-end machines. " Wow does my E-mail just fly off of my computer and my browsing the web is just unbelievable with four core cpu's." I wonder how many people still go along with the cliche...

    Lite-On Out With Affordable Blu Ray Drive

    Give the reader away for free. If the movie industry wants me to buy BR movies at around $30 a pop right away, maybe they should throw in a reader. Somewhat like the printer companies. When you can buy a cheap printer for less then the price of the refills. The BR disks can't cost more then 2...

    NVIDIA Accuses Intel of Anti-Competitive Pricing for Atom Processor

    Its a dog eat dog world and these big boys believe that you can do anything you want untill you get caught. After that the fines dictate whether they stop or not. Compared to their cash flow most of these fines are a slap on the wrist and a tax write off on their business expense. Since the CEO...

    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    (In the EU, the Modernization Regulation 1/2003 means that the European Commission is no longer the only body capable of public enforcement of European Community competition law. This was done in order to facilitate quicker resolution of competition-related inquiries. In 2005 the Commission...

    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    Slow down, don't get your panties tied into a knot. Intel has as far as i've read 6 billion invested in europe, Ireland comes to mind. Just recently did they not shut the chip plant down. Ops I see tears swelling up in your eyes for the workers who lost their jobs. What penalty, read my lips, as...

    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    = The incentive is cost cutting like we see with auto dealers usually sticking to only one brand of cars (only have to stock one set of parts for replacement). I wouldn't be using the auto sector as an example. Were seeing whats happening in the Auto sector. Eg GM or Chrysler.

    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    And to top it off their is no punishment for Intel or any other outfit from the USA (just a reminder) in the USA all fines are classified as a business right off. What incentive is there to stop. When the US taxpayers bitch about their taxes going up to support outfits like this and government...

    The Pirate Bay in Legal Soup, Owners Fined and Jailed

    A little off topic, but we seem to be going in a full circle. The internet first started by being open, now it seems the net is being filtered to the point of I'm being taken by the hand and told this is what you can and cannot do and what ever way we decide, you will obey. I just hope the Post...

    The Pirate Bay in Legal Soup, Owners Fined and Jailed

    Since Google has everything that TPB does and and shall I say, more than we are aware of, you would of thought the RIAA and MPAA would be all over Google, but shall I say, Google has deep pockets and possibly have a few politicians in their pockets. All the RIAA have shown is that they only...

    Mailman you just don't see the bigger picture of why millions feel stepped on and why they are committing civil disobedience. Let me shorten the last quote a little more for your benefit. I don't steal, I'm trying to explain why others may be committing civil disobedience. "the injustice and...

    Sometimes it takes a person from a developing nation to cut to the core, here is his quote And I have underlined what I have been trying to get across. One user from India writes, "When I use uTorrent to download torrent files from TPB I notice most of my peers are from rich countries...

    The Pirate Bay in Legal Soup, Owners Fined and Jailed

    No its not crazy, we are by law allowed to download music, its a better system then having the RIAA Gestapo send letters to people and extort money because the majority can't afford to fight them in court.Thats the American way:toast: Someone from the WhiteHouse probably sent out a directive to...

    The Pirate Bay in Legal Soup, Owners Fined and Jailed

    I don't see the difference, our cableboxes have hard drives in them so you can record, and that is any program,tv shows, movies. To download from the net is no difference, its all coming down the same pipeline. One of the selling points for the PVR is to be able to record what ever you want, so...

    Its to bad the developers don't put out games that work the way they should. You buy a game with your hard earned money, it doesn't work, your told you have to wait for a patch. Problem is your pissed and can't take a broken game back. All because the developer had a time table to fulfill. To...

    What about my other points that build up to my main point, picking one sentence does not elaborate what I was getting at, the whole paragraph makes my statement. Just to refresh your memory here it is again. No where in my paragraph do I state to steal. That is your assumption. In a close...
